Since 2012, EHP has worked to protect the health of people living in the shadow of shale gas development. We have provided guidance to global partners, extending our reach from southwestern Pennsylvania and across the United States to India and beyond. We have produced first-in-the-nation data on health symptoms associated with shale gas development and have presented our findings to residents, to healthcare professionals and researchers, and to policymakers at the local, state, and federal levels.
EHP has also conducted more than 550 individual health evaluations and placed more than 800 air monitoring devices in communities. Through timely monitoring, data interpretation, and personalized guidance, EHP seeks to equip residents with the information they need to take immediate health-protective actions and to advocate for policy changes to protect their communities against the impacts of shale gas development.
